Legend reveals that the original Royal Oakland Gramophone recorder fell off a designated pack camel during the early days of the 1905 oriental sound expedition - Lost, but apparently fully functional it was soon picked up and tamed by the long string of locals & traders into whose hands it passed. One of the last discovered recordings contains the mysterious crackling sounds of 1 resigned voice and an approaching swarm. This installment was in fact semi-rehashed from the previous ROGC shows...

Though it didn't technically count as "returning" since they LIVE audio linked with the s&S studio from their home base. Hope you tuned in, blended yourself a future-shake, listened to the sounds of the year 6000 AD - and vainly made an attempt to graph the incomprehensible multi-dimensional routes signals took before reaching your ears. Featured were loads of field sounds recorded at the Chabot Observatory earlier in the day
This night, Royal Oakland Gramophone Company gave a deep sea tour via our trusty time-space sound machine - channelling the songs of lonely-heart humpbacks, sea lions, alien submersibles & drunken sailors - all serenading the great iron coffins off the Oakistan coast.

In this age of instant media beaming & data pushing, there still have been many listener/music-makers out there who took the time to package up some of their home-brew sounds, lick a block of stamps and set the little parcel off en route to s&S.

This was the LAST live webcast show on s&S - at least for a good while. So it seemed sensible to needle drop on highlights from past ROGC shows and whatever else unfolded. It's been a long time coming, but your studio host and the Oakistani catacombs will be permanently parting ways soon - Snipping cables and burning receipts is dirty, time consuming business, so best to discontinue these with some weeks to spare.

It was 1905 AD. The missing Gramophone recorder made it's way back westward ... passing through many hands, many lands... listening to, and remembering, every part of it's now fractured history. Was the roaring brass flower in the cross hairs of a futuristic queen bee - great grannny-to-be of s&S?? We didn't exactly find that out this time around, but among the long list of other revealed characters: a rabid Sumatran flute player, a mysterious man muttering on his deathbed, a crazed...

A live cross-town studio to studio sound link from bLeakhouse to Compound-Eye: Sagan = (Blevin Blectum, Lesser, and Wobbly). Beaming directly from their bLeakhouse studio, Sagan remotely hotdogged the s&S shuttlecraft though the crab nebula, dicey asteroid fields and hyperspace rips without even breaking a sweat - not to mention that perfect 3 point landing on stage just in time to kick Rick Wakeman's scrawny little 1978 cape-wearin ass.
The rumor's true folks - the weekly Sunday LIVE shows on s&S are 2 short of being done, fin, terminado, ??. or at least on an extended hiatus as you've come to know them - the full skinny coming next week!

T'was that time of the month, and there wasn't a single Otis to be found! But, ah!

No....Royal Oakland Gramophone Company passed for the evening - apparently the caravan leader was poisoned while en route from 1905 to the contemporary timeslot. ROGC will re-emerge with the promised episode May 15th. Instead, SOME DAMN INTERN hand picked, played and mixed music and sounds for your enjoyment.
